I've been having some difficulty importing a .ost file into Outlook 2000. I know that it is an Archive Mail File but that selection is not on the list of things to add. So My Question is. How do I convert it to be added as a .pst file or actualy get the .ost file to be added

you can't import the data from an ost file.  instead you would search google for a tool called ost2pst.  this will convert the ost to a pst so you can import the items.

I have also used a program called ExchangeRecovery.  I'm not sure how much each license costs, but it works on most OST files.
